BELL’S INEQUALITY: A Distinction between Local Reality and Quantum Mechanics Theory

Saturday, February 27th, 2010

Marichu M. Tompong-Miscala Local realism is the idea that an object has definite properties or assumes a definite state without being affected by the act of measurement [1]. This belief is especially contrary to the probabilistic ( not deterministic ) characteristic of quantum mechanics. In 1965, John S. Bell had proposed a mathematical proof or […]

A “Schrodinger Cat” Superposition

Saturday, February 27th, 2010

Sandra L. Manulat “Schrodinger’s cat paradox is a classical illustration of the conflict between the existence of quantum superpositions and our real-world experience of observation and measurement”[1]. The Principle of Superposition of States in quantum mechanics has become strikingly successful at describing physical phenomena at the atomic scale.  Quantum superposition requires us to assume that […]

Brief history of the development of quantum mechanics

Saturday, February 27th, 2010

Karl Patrick S. Casas Any object of higher temperature than its surroundings radiates and loses heat. More radiation is produced if you raise the temperature even higher. Even objects at room temperature glow, but in the form of infrared radiation, which is not detectable by the eye. A black body absorbs all frequencies and emits […]
